Get some CPDs. I'm in love with them because they look like mini brook trout.

well i saw these little red fish with black dots in the middle of their body at a pet shop a few weeks back so i think it will be either those or CPDs. I wanna get the smallest fish i can so i can get a lot of them and it will make the tank look bigger, does anyone know the name of those red fish? They weren't any bigger than a small RCS. I'm also open to recommendations for fish but they gotta be small and colorful.


edit: oh they were either dwarf, chili, or phoenix rasboras, i think they were phoenix rasboras.

wow, that looks great! how long was your photoperiod during your dry start? i just started an 11.4 mr aqua, dry start method, with hc. so far its been going for a week, with an 8 hour photoperiod. i noticed a little bit of growth, but heard that upping the photoperiod to 12 hours would really help. so i adjusted my timers yesterday to a 12 hour period, we'll see how this next week goes. im misting it every morning, and have the water just below the substrate. cling wrap over the top as well.

thanks for sharing your progress!

Hum you're probably talking about "Mosquito Rasbora" aka Boraras Brigittae or it could be Galaxy Rasbora. They are beautiful fish indeed. But those fishes are really shy and live in middle of tank and they won't hesitate to JUMP up suicide when water level is too high. You need to build a net or glass...

Really looks good! I love the moss that's starting to grow on the rocks.

I had mine on for 14 hours, might have been a little long because i had some algae forming, 12 hours should be good i would think.
